    he was out neighbor, married with 3 kids,

    his wife even ran a daycare center. I'm not sure if any other girls there were touched but I think from the time I was 14 to 15. I never told because at the time I didn't have a computer and I would go over there to use theirs and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to use it any...

    It Went On For 6 Years

    I was molested by my uncle from when I was 6 years old until I was 12. I remember exactly how it started. He was painting the fence at grampa's house. Me and my cousin Kathy asked if we could help. I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Uncle Rick was kneeling down next to me. He...

    UPDATE: So as y'all know I held a secret

    for 4 years. Last night, I finally told my parents. I feel free in a way. I no longer have to keep it to myself but I still don't feel relieved. My parents still have to finish talking about how to deal with this. For those of you who were molested or raped or abused in any way...

    I was maybe 6 or 7 then

    and he was 13. I had no idea what he was doing to me so I just allowed it. I eventually learned that it was wrong when I grew up. He and I never talked about it even until now. And I doubt he has any idea I still remember what he did to me. It's weird but I actually liked the...

    We moved to Phoenix just

    It's too late. Too late to tell them what

    happened that night. Too ashamed. I never told a soul, never confessed, never weeped. Wait, maybe once, when I was pretending to sleep. Now I'm not the same, nothing will ever be the same. The hand prints are still burning against my skin. So I push away everyone, even my...

    When I was 12, my brother molested me.

    I can recall two separate times when he did it. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but the memories of it were repressed, and I didn't even think about it again until I was 18. As far as I can remember, one time it was when I was in bed, about to fall asleep. He came...

    The last time was Christmas Eve three years ago.

    I've told one person and I've always felt like the outsider looking in, disconnected. I never felt like it actually happened but it did four times, and I don't know how to feel about it. I don't feel angry or lost or hurt. I feel like I've just watched a car collision and I'm...

    and to maybe inspire and help others who have gone through similar things as me. Like I said in my shared experience before, I was molested by my cousin. As I said, I have not told my parents yet. I've only told my closest friends. I get nightmares that keep me up at night and I...

    How Much Of What We Think We Remember Is Real?

    I look around me in school and wonder how many other girls were molested by their uncles, fathers, brothers. Is it still happening to some of them? I've never told anyone. I wear a smile to hide what's going on inside me so can their smiles be just masks as well? Am I the only...

    I was 8 years old when he first touched me.

    He was in the basement spending the day at our house watching tv. I went to ask him if he wanted to play with me and my sisters, because he usually would. He told me he was too tired to play so I told him ok. I went turned around and went to walk upstairs until he strangely...

    enough, the house maid molests and abuses me also. For some reason, I feel like people who are abused, are continuously being bothered by other molesters. It's like we attract them or something. Anyway, the maid is disgusting. She's in her late 40's and she's fat and looks...

    Second Time

    The second time happened only a month after my sister started abusing me. She'd take me into our bathroom daily. And I always prayed, Dear God, please let my mom walk in, if she walked in she could stop her. But at the same time, I DIDN'T want my mother to know. I knew, if my mom...

    and molesting me. And by then I was old enough to sort of understand what was going on and the situation. And that just because he was doing this to me he wasn't hurting me and he would stop if I told him to. And I knew I could tell an adult and it would stop and he would get in...

    I know this is an experience page

    but I have a question in regards, how do I tell my husband what happened to me? Do I just say it straight out with the correct terminology or explain it? I don't know how to express myself when I think about telling someone. My husband will be the first person I have ever told.

    when I was 13-14. I'm 32 now, and to this day I have never told a soul. I always faked being asleep the many many times it happened. I didn't know what to do, and I sometimes feel guilty about being so weak. Weak to allow it and weak not to speak up. They divorced due to his...
